After 40 years of hard rocking, rolling and partying, Aerosmith is one of the few arena acts that have remained a hot ticket decade after decade—and singer Steven Tyler has retained his title as one of music’s most iconic frontmen. Today, young people probably recognize the Demon of Screamin’ for his two-year stint as a judge on American Idol, but classic rock fans easily remember the “Crazy” singer for his high-pitched scat vocals on Aerosmith hits like “Dream On,” “Sweet Emotion” and “Walk This Way.”
This summer, “The Bad Boys From Boston” will team back up with Slash, who opened for the group in 1988 when he was playing guitar for Guns N Roses, for the Let Rock Rule Tour. GNR were just starting to break through with Appetite For Destruction and had reason to celebrate, but the members of Aerosmith were newly sober, which made for interesting tour fellows. “It was a little awkward because of the fact that we were all sober and they weren’t, but because of who we were and who they were, there was a respect on their part and they didn’t get involved with that around us or in front of us,” drummer Joey Kramer told UltimateClassicRock.com in April 2014. “They pretty much kept to themselves and in their dressing rooms. So they were respectful of what we were doing.” Perhaps this time around, everyone will be able to indulge in something healthier, like one of Aerosmith’s culinary offshoots. When the band’s not performing, Kramer has his own coffee company, Rock & Roasters, while guitarist Joe Perry boasts Rock Your World hot sauce.
